  1. We can always point to a few examples, but Jersey Irish's point still stand, MOST coaches were not standout players, especially the top tier coaches. Guys like Major Applewhite, Graham Harrell, and Eric Bieniemy are the exceptions to the rule "Those who can't 'do,' teach"
  2. I was honestly never that high on Adams...The guy is like Jerry Rice in terms of speed VERY slow coming off the line (with Adams, almost clunky it seems), but once he gets going, Adams has great top end speed and will pull away from almost anybody With Jerry Rice, being slow off the line isn't that much of a detriment for a WR. Even on short routes, it's really about your route running more so than absolute stand-still acceleration But for RB, they absolutely need that burst so that they can hit those holes that tend to close up quickly
  3. jesus, he doesn't look it in that tweet featuring him in the Notre Dame uniform, but he's freakin huge. He's basically a fast TE edit: forgot to mention, I looked up some of his TDs
  4. I honestly think we should cut the regular season back down to 10 games, have the individual conference championship games (including Group of 5) as an automatic bid (11th game), and expand the playoff to 16 teams (10 automatic bids and 6 at-large). A few notes: - You can't have more than two representatives per conference, in the playoffs - 10 Games will be broken out as such: - First 3 games are OOC, kind of like the inter-conference tournaments of college basketball to determine the respective strengths of each conference for ranking (the polls still matter) - 5 Division games - 2 Cr
  5. The problem is...Kelly HAS actually shown he can recruit top tier QB's Dayne Crist - 2007 Elite 11 (Kelly didn't recruit him, but just wanted to add to show the sheer amount of talent we've had at QB) Everett Golson - 2010 Elite 11 Gunner Kiel - 2011 Elite 11 Finalist Malik Zaire - 2012 Elite 11 Deshone Kizer - 2013 Elite 11 Finalist Brandon Wimbush - 2014 Elite 11 Avery Davis - 2016 Elite 11 Finalist The REAL problem is Kelly can't develop QBs. It's the Kelly Law: First year, his QB typically does well, second year, they regress, and then another QB controversy. Rinse and repeat
  6. Just curious, how is Alabama getting stale, and what flaws has Clemson shown? (Keeping in mind that pretty much all teams have flaws, even in the NFL) edit: Forgot to chime in on OPs question... I'd say "No"...for a couple of reasons: 1. Kelly's history with QBs. I believe I brought this up back at the beginning of the 2017 season when I declared Wimbush a lost cause and got shredded for arguing 1) Kelly not having a good history with QBs and 2) Wimbush not panning out. But good to see people coming around on the Kelly thing. We already know what happened with Wimbush 2. Notre Dame's p
  7. I actually really enjoy Fox's CFB coverage I REALLY enjoy Gus Johnson's play-by-play; the guy gets me pumped up after TD's lol....I also enjoy Joe Klatt's objective analysis. I think we need to shift our partnership's. Athletic wear partnership needs to go to Nike. And Broadcast partnership needs to just get away from NBC...Fox or ESPN is better in terms of marketing their games and making them spectacles
  8. I honestly haven't been watching this season. I mentioned it in another thread, but my doctor says I need to get rid of unnecessary stress (among other things) and Notre Dame Football was deemed unnecessary stress lol But damn, we're already mid-season! Also, other than a flashy recruit here and there, I haven't followed recruiting at all really since the 2017 class
  9. O/U at 45? That seems like a slap in the face edit: I just noticed OP said the most in 30 years for Notre Dame....Probably means the spread is -45
  10. Honestly, probably a smart move on Bubba's part (I also completely forgot about him)
  11. Just because they did doesn't mean we should accept it I honestly forgot the exact game, but I remember a team pulling this against us and everyone was up in arms about it...everyone will care if it's done against their team.
  12. The second one was absolutely fake...in the replay you can see he was standing around just fine, then all of a sudden puts his hand by his eyes and falls down First one was actually more believable
  13. lol yup...I got over it But I should stress that the caliber of team that we like to think we are don't do this
  14. I said in another thread that I've been cooling off on ND Football to help with my stress levels (doctor's orders, among other things) In any case, I was still watching the game, but with tempered expectations. Right when a second Notre Dame defender (Bilal) faked an injury, I honestly turned off the TV I immediately thought we basically already lost if we have to resort to cheap tricks like that. That was really embarrassing and honestly the team deserved to get boo'd (you know we would do it if a team did that to us). They may still keep it close, but you essentially already lost the g
